Out of necessity a new thread for a new product:
I want to test the waters if you would be interested in such a board


The Bitfury design i am working on is a 16 Chip board with the same form factor as the BitBurner.
I think it makes sense that i will sell boards including the chips now - no more group buys.

Best demonstrated performance per chip is currently 2.7Ghash resulting in 42ghash/s per board.
I am aiming for 5 Ghash per chip, i will be doing things differently then the competition which will hopefully
allow us to squeeze more performance out of this silicon.
Host interface and Controller / stacking will stay the same.

Price: ~470eur+vat (Complete module including chips)
Delivery: early October if Punin delivers on time.

Depends on how we can use the paid orders from avalon chips.

To answer the question:  Yes, I would buy one to a couple if the price was right.

I think you do great work.

Would they be compatible with the M-boards?
Would you be making cheap M-boards ?  Cool

If you can get close to 4GHs from each chip then I would buy. Less than say 3.5 & with any delay on chip delivery & I would again face high risk of negative ROI as I face with my Bitburners.

I don't mean it as an insult in any way on people who asked for refund on bitburners, but would you consider a small loyalty discount for people who stick with bitburner orders? That would definitely influence my decision on Bitfury. (Furious Burners? lol)

Go to a bank, get a 2 month loan, buy and build 1000 chips/boards and the community will support you with 10% deposit orders. This is how business needs to be done, like a business.

So, we're talking like 7 Eur/GH in October assuming you can get chips to 5GH/s? Sounds awesome Cheesy Any guesses about power consumption considering the chips would be at 5GHz? Smiley

As you can do early October, I would like to shift my bitburner order over to bitfury chips (based on estimated 70% carry-over of value); it's a close call though; if it had been late October, I'd probably have taken the partial refund

Yeah and hopefully a proper designed use of the chip Smiley

The USB interface crap (and lack of anything marginally representing a protocol) coming from some others, with the ButFury chips, is horrendous Tongue

... looking forward to it!

Can you get more than 2.5Gh/s per chip from USB interface?
just curious.

Will the bitfury chip be 'enough' given the other chips coming out?
What are the numbers and when does the Bitfury become the next Avalon chip?

Be nice to know the rough timeframe on that to consider whether a Bitfury project is viable.

Check the power efficiency here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=281279.0.  The BitFury chip is well within the ballpark of the expected efficiency of future chips.  As for cost competitiveness ... who knows.  As far as I'm concerned, if a Bitfury based design will achieve a healthy positive ROI within a few months, there isn't much to worry about.

I would be interested, I'm a big fan of the hobby-style boards. Hopefully it will be free of the usual pre-order madness! I like the design of your avalon boards, bitfury is a great next step.

EDIT: I would be interested in 2-4 of your boards. Thanks again for the great designs!
